It's Friday and I'm Obsessing Yet Again
Okay, I'm working the yoga socks on circulars because after the first 6 inches they're knit flat anyway. I tried. I really, really tried! I just can't get the hang of the darn double pointed needles! I seriously think that my brain is lacking some particular piece that allows one to figure out double pointed needles. I'm an intelligent person. Why the hell can't I get a handle on the darn needles?! Anyway, on to obsessing. I'm obsessing over the Lady Eleanor shawl from Scarf Style and ever since I saw Fig and Plum's finished product and she said that she was surprised at how easy it was and it's entralac and the yarn is so rustic (well, it's wool - and not superwash - so I suppose that would make it rustic). I have been looking and looking at wool and yardage and the price on all my favorite sites and some new ones. I'm also wanting to make the KnitandTonic "Not So Shrunken Cardigan". I have the pattern and I may as well face the fact that I'm going to have to spend more than $20 on both of these projects! I think I just want to "purchase". You know that feeling. You almost don't care what you buy as long as it involves knitting and it's new and it comes in the mail! I did order two circular needles from Fuzzy Mabel and I have to say that they only charged me for priority mailing (I think $3.85) and it came in two days. I bought the Inox needles with the teflon coating. I love those things and can never find them around here. They came in a clear bag tied with lavender yarn and then wrapped in lavender tissue paper! I just kept fondling the package. Almost hated to open it. I love it when things come wrapped that way. KnitPixie (okay - kpixie) wraps their packages like that too. It's a serious selling point for me!
Anyway, I'm about to leave the office. I should have left already but wanted to post something. That explains my rambling. Just so excited about knitting! I haven't had a lot of time this week so I'm hoping to knit 'til I drop.
